We are the transitional industry training organisation for sport, exercise, recreation and performing arts. We create qualifications and help workplaces to get staff trained up. Through this work, our industries can step up, strengthen their people and flourish as individuals and businesses.
Doing work that you love is a privilege that’s open to anyone who works hard and follows their dreams, says Skills Active apprentice Lucas Tofani Souza, who followed his dreams all the way from South America to New Zealand.
Skills Active is reflecting back on an eventful year in its 2019 Annual Report, which details a strong performance and growth in qualifications and programmes – all under a backdrop of major structural change, through the reform of vocational education.
We want to say a massive "ka rawe!" to all of the successful Skills Active trainees who completed their qualifications in the first half of 2020.
Skills Active applauds the government’s latest measure to support sport, recreation and performing arts employers to hire and keep on apprentices during the Covid-19 recovery period.
New Zealand needs well-trained, qualified staff.
Our qualifications are a stepping stone to your future.
